What is a "runtime" function anyway? :)

My only objection is software project structuring. My gut tells me that
a project essentially devoted to including a bunch of cool, portable
code won't be very well focused.

Now, I don't have as much objection to bundling a bunch of pieces
together, and having a common build script that compiles them all, but
I think the place for that is Apache, not APR.

Because we still want the code to be easily modularized. It's just
better code design in the long run, and it also becomes easier for
other projects to make use of the code.
